It is happening, folks! The highly anticipated #CODNation Challenge is live!
The annual Race to Prestige has been renamed to the #CODNation Challenge, and it is live right now. The #CODNation Challenge brings popular gamer personalities together to stream Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 for the entire weekend. All views, clicks, and donations from the stream will go directly to the Call of Duty Endowment Fund.
Personalities taking part in this year’s round-the-clock weekend stream include Jericho, GoldLove, Hutch, and VernNotice. Activision states that 2018’s #CODNation Challenge is “bigger and better than ever” because of the official launch for the highly anticipated Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. The event is currently live, over on the #CODNation Challenge Twitch page, live from Treyarch’s Santa Monica, CA studio.
The stream is sponsored by Gamestop, Lovesac, Scuf Gaming, ASTRO Gaming, and Kontrol Freak. All streamers featured throughout the #CODNation Challenge have teamed up with stream-for-charity organisation Tiltify, which allows audience members to donate as they watch. It features a minimum funding goal of $100 000 USD. This minimum should be enough to accrue, considering it is all about getting military veterans new jobs. A worthy cause! Last year’s stream garnered over $150 000 in donations, of which Activision matched to a maximum of $100 000, which made a total of $250 000. This year, Activision has pledged to match up to $500 000!
